My (now) husband and I were nervous about finding an officiant that would be able to capture our spiritual energy and our love story to make our ceremony feel truly unique and meaningful to us. We were so lucky to be introduced to Ann! After our first phone conversation, which ended up lasting an hour because the three of us just could not stop chatting, we knew that we had found someone truly special. Ann is focused on making the ceremony so personalized, and truly wanted to get to know us. We did not feel like just another random couple getting married by someone we had just met. We filled out a short questionnaire and submitted our responses separately to her so she could include some of our own words in the ceremony. It was so sweet hearing what my husband thought of our love through Ann. She was thoughtful, genuine, detail oriented, and helped us write our own vows. When we finally met in person a few weeks before the big day, my husband, Ann and I felt such an immediate connection! By the end of our meeting we were hugging and laughing. On our big day, Ann had such a calming, sweet, loving spirit that helped us truly embrace the beautiful moments of our ceremony. We feel SO lucky to have found Ann- she gave us the ceremony of our dreams!
I can not tell you how much I loved meeting you and Carl and being part of the wedding. We connected on so many levels and I knew after meeting you that I was truly following my calling as a wedding minister. The meeting was very special to me, as well as you and Carl. I can not express my joy for our friendship.
Ann was absolutely the best selection for our wedding. From the moment we met she clicked! She helped us through everything. Her words during the ceremony are so touching. She will feel more like a family member than an officiant at your wedding! I highly recommend her for your special day!
You and Summer were such a fun couple. It was my honor to marry you. I could tell at the rehearsal and wedding that you are surrounded by people that love you. What a testimony to the life you lead!
Ann was amazing to work with. She crafted a beautiful secular ceremony with vows that were special to both my husband and myself. We are so happy that Ann officiated our wedding.
It was a lovely wedding. The children in the ceremony did a great job. Christina, you were a beautiful bride.
She truly is amazing and gets to know the couple very well. The ceremony was beautiful and we wouldn’t have waned it any other way.
It was a true joy working with you. The voes you wrote to each other were so heartfelt, that it was difficult for me to keep from crying myself. Most of the guests felt the same way. What a special love you have for each other.
Ann was awesome every step of the way! She was very helpful in making our special day even better than I could’ve imagined! Especially when I had to change our venue just TWO days before the ceremony, she called me and helped calm me down and offered many suggestions of others locations!
Thank you Ann!
The venue you choose was perfect. I loved the outdoor setting and you were wonderful to work with. I am so happy for your new life.
Ann was an absolute joy to work with and have officiate our wedding day. She was very responsive to all of our messages and very attentive to what we wanted in our ceremony. We could not have picked a better officiant!!
You were a delightful couple. It was my pleasure to be part of your ceremony, The setting was beautiful. Your family and friends were great.
I'm just grateful for you being so flexible and able to help on short notice
The venue was perfect even if you had to make a last minute change to be under the tent. You handled it well and it was flawless. The "tying the knot" ceremony was a fun addition.
We were married by Ann about a week ago and I can't say enough good things! She was easy to work with, needed little guidance from us and kept the ceremony special and captivating. Thank you Ann!
The morning ceremony was perfect. All the children were such a special edition. I thought it was lovely especially to include everyone in the ceremony. What a delight!
Ann was great for our ceremony. We met prior and she was very flexible with anything we needed, and any location. I am so glad we were able to come together for our special day!
Tara and you were very easy to work with. Mason seemed to enjoy himself being part of the sand ceremony. It is a special ceremony to include children in it. The setting was fabulous and it was a beautiful day for a wedding.
We are so thankful that we were able to have Ann officiate our wedding. She took the time to get to know each of us and listened to what we wanted and incorporated that into her ceremony. Every time we spoke to her she was so excited and couldn't wait until the wedding day! We love her!!
You and Vickie are truly a special couple. I loved incorporating the "5 Love Languages" in the ceremony. Having all 3 children part of the sand ceremony was very special. Thank you for allowing me to be part of this day for you.
Ann was super flexible to meet our last minute service request. She did a great job of doing exactly what we asked for, but also went above and beyond without making us feel overwhelmed.
I enjoyed being part of your wedding. With your circumstances and the need for a wedding within a few days- I am glad it all worked out before your husband had to leave.
Ann was wonderful and very pleasant. We appreciate her professionalism and guidance on our big day.
Thank you for your kind words.
Ann was great she explained step by step on how things happen when using a officiant, she was the only one that did that. I called 3 others and she was the only one that showed she cared!
Thank you Jennifer. I really enjoyed officiating your wedding and meeting your wonderful family and friends.
It was fate that we met Ann at the LGBTQ Wedding Expo in Raleigh; my partner and I were well into our wedding planning but attended the expo to show support for the community. Ann was one of the last booths we passed and she greeted us with “do you have an officiant for your wedding?”, well, we actually did not at that time. We hit it off with Ann immediately, she is friendly, caring and fun to talk to. During the weeks leading up to wedding, Ann was diligent in working with us on a ceremony which expressed our devotion and commitment to each other. We were happy to have her officiate over this important moment of our lives and will always be thankful for her passion and expertise.
It was my honor to marry two wonderful women who have been committed to each other for so many years. I will cherish the wedding and wish to thank you for allowing me to be part of it.
She did very well at wording our vows w/ what little info. we provided.
Your wedding was beautiful at Doyle's Vineyard. The setting was perfect. I am happy that I was able to be part of the special day.
Ann was our officiant for our Mad Dash wedding at the Mims house, which is a pop-up wedding concept that books your vendors for you. So having only met Ann moments before our ceremony, I was very impressed with her efficiency and professionalism. She knew exactly what to do and where to have the bridal party ststioned even though it was a very chaotic moment. During the ceremony, She spoke very thoughtful and meaningful words that matched with the spiritual/non-religious aspect that we wanted. We wrote our own vows and she fit these seamlessly into the rest of the ceremony. She also was very kind to work with our pup in asking him to bring up the rings!
It was a very happy occasion. Your puppy was very enthusiastic and brought a little more joy to the ceremony. I enjoyed being part of your event.
And has been a friend of the family for some time now and it was a joy to be able to have her be a part of our wedding. It was great that she was able to accommodate our wishes and a very small and intimate venue. Wheel of the vows that she had written for us because they really encapsulated our love. She is a wonderful woman and would be a great addition to anyone's wedding.
I was very happy to be part of you and Matt's wedding. It was a challenge not to shed a tear when I saw Matt shed one. It was a beautiful setting and the party afterward was great. Happy to do a wedding for people I know.
We had less than 2 weeks to plan our elopement in an area we knew little about. Ann responded quickly to our initial inquiry and was quick to speak with us about the ceremony. In a short amount of time she was able to put together a ceremony that was just right for us, and even helped us find a perfect setting! We loved Ann the moment we met her! Professional, caring, warm, personable, real, and invested in making our day exactly what we wanted it to be--special! We can't recommend her enough!
It was my pleasure to marry you and Randy. The Mayton Inn was lovely and New Year's Eve was definitely a day to remember. I enjoyed being part of your ceremony.
EXCELLENT!!! YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED
I enjoyed meeting your wonderful family and officiating your wedding. I wish you and Richard all the best in Bermuda.
Ann is incredible! She spent time getting to know us, both individually and as a couple, and in doing so, incorporated what she learned to create a beautiful and unique ceremony with personalized, heartfelt, and meaningful vows. Ann is a genuine, warm, and calming person who is strives to make sure you have all you need.
It was a joy officiating your wedding. Who knew when we first met at a networking event, I would end up being part of your wedding. We were meant to meet that night. I also enjoyed having you and your daughter come to a meditation before the wedding. I appreciate you including me on your special day.
My husband and I feel so lucky to have found Ann to be our wedding officiant. We did a search on thumbtack and received several quotes back. Ann's fees were very reasonable and she will tailor your ceremony however you want it. On the day of our ceremony she was prompt, made everyone feel comfortable and was very professional. Ann has a lovely sense of humor and is a genuine person. We highly recommend for your special day!
Thank you Ann,
Julie and Doug Sutter
It was my honor to officiate your and Doug's wedding at the Matthews House. Your parents were wonderful also. I appreciate you letting me be part of your special ceremony.
Ann officiated my wife Kathy and I wedding in October and boy was she a pleasure to work with. Ann helped us create and personalize our vows, she was very friendly yet professional. I strongly recommend using Ann as she is outstanding at performing Weddings.
Thank you for your kind words. I truly enjoyed working with you and Kathy and having the children involved in the ceremony. The beach was a very spiritual place for the ceremony.
I would definitely recommend Ann. My husband and I weren't really sure the direction we wanted to take with our ceremony, we just knew the things we didn't want. We met with Ann and talked with her several times before the rehearsal and wedding and she offered us lots of suggestions and good advice about the themes we could use. She was great listener and wanted to make this ceremony about us. We ended up using several of her ideas for our ceremony, she wrote the most beautiful wedding script, and she offered some very useful critiques for each of our vows which made them work so well together for the ceremony. She was very easy to get a hold of, very responsive, fun and full of life. I would recommend Ann to anyone.
Thank you so much. I really enjoyed marrying you and Tom. It was a beautiful wedding.
I had the pleasure to have Ann as my wedding coordinator. She made my day less stressful! She's very well organized! I highly recommend her for your wedding needs!
When it came time for my wife, Camille, and I to identify an officiant for our wedding ceremony, we knew the individual had to be one who highlighted our values, beliefs, and love shared. After the first conversation, we instantly knew Ann was God sent. Ann made sure to exceed our expectations by taking the time to get to know each of us and our desires for our special day. She made sure to be thoughtful and considerate of our life stories, giving light to this through her tailored transcript of our ceremony. As a couple, we want our love to inspire others to love. Ann did just that by setting a beautiful tone for our ceremony. We are blessed that we were able to share our union with Ann and are so happy to call her a friend, a bond that will forever be in our hearts! Love Mrs. Candace and Camille Green
